Emilia Clarke has no plans to return for ‘Terminator’ sequels

“Game of Thrones” actress Emilia Clarke is sure she doesn’t want to return as Sarah Connor for the next installments in the “Terminator” franchise.


The British actress, who appeared alongside Arnold Schwarzenegger in the latest installment titled “Terminator Genisys”, gave a straight “no” when asked if she would reprise her role as Sarah Connor in its follow-ups, reported Aceshowbiz.

“No. Can I say that? It’s okay. No. Uh-uh,” the 29-year-old star said in a chat with Coming Soon.

“But I have some very different roles coming up.” One of the roles she’s talking about is the lead in “Me Before You”.

“I read the book and it was just the most beautiful thing I had ever read,” she said of Jojo Moyes’ novel on which the romantic drama is based.

“Genisys”, which also starred Jason Clarke and Jai Courtney, was planned as the first of a trilogy of new “Terminator” movies.

The big-budget 2015 film received a lot of negative reviews and was a commercial flop as it earned less than USD 100 in North America, though it did perform well in some other countries like China.

Fans assumed the trilogy was cancelled after Paramount removed the next “Genysis” films from their release schedule. The sequel’s original May 19, 2017 slot is occupied by the “Baywatch” movie. The third film’s 2019 release date remains empty.

Schwarzenegger, however, is pretty optimistic the next films will still happen. While discussing the franchise’s future in an interview a few weeks ago, he said, “I am looking forward to it, absolutely.”
